STEM week proved a great success at Echline Primary! The P4/5 assembly gave a fantastic introduction into STEM week and all children did so well in explaining it to the whole school.
During STEM week we had some exciting workshops and visitors. In P4-P5, we had Denise from Napier University who spoke to us about 3D printing and we even got to use the 3D pens to create our own. She also did workshops in P6-7 about coding.
We also had John Renwick from ESP Scotland (also a parent) who kindly came in to show children from P4-7 the immersive reality kit. Which was great fun!
David Wylie from Leonardo airborne safe systems came into P1 to speak to them about helicopters.
There were many more STEM activities that happened around the school involving building marshmallow towers and hoop gliders.
I’m sure everyone had a fantastic week learning about STEM!
Last Thursday we were very lucky to be visited by a Judo instructor. We learned lots about Judo, did you know that Judo means ‘the gentle way’? We got to take part in some hands on exercises, and we all really enjoyed the session.
